First Landing

A few minutes walk from where we are moored at Vuda Point Marina in Fiji is a resort called First Landing. It is called this because according to legend this beach is where the first Fijians landed around 1500 BC. We took a picture of their sign that showed an aerial view of the walkway to the man-made foot-shaped island which is part of the First Landing Resort.

Odd shaped island

The folks at the Resort welcome cruisers to their bar, restaurant, and pool. So we walked over and luxuriated in their pool on a hot sunny day, and of course bought a drink in appreciation for usage of their amenities.

The following view of the area (copied from the internet) shows the foot and at the lower right is the Vuda Point Marina where we have Sea Turtle.

Fiji and the other island nations between here and Australia make First Island Resort a popular and convenient place for both cruising and regular tourists.
